ESOL - Bilingual endorsement

Endorsements and Specializations

ESOL Summer Program 2011 (formerly ESOL Morelia program)

 

To learn more about what happened to the program in Morelia, Mexico, go to http://esolsummer.weebly.com/ and click on the Morelia tab.

Western Oregon University, in conjunction with AHA International and the Northwest Consortium on Study Abroad, offers two ESOL classes each summer in a Latin American country. The ESOL Summer Program was founded in Morelia, Mexico. Because of the current socio-political situation in Mexico, we have added the study site in Rosario, Argentina. Visit this cosmopolitan city, take Spanish classes, and take classes that are required for your ESOL endorsement!
